Q: Can I ask about bringing a plus one? This situation is this: I am a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding, one of four (including the maid of honor). The other three bridesmaids are married, and all are bringing their husbands. When I got my invitation, my boyfriend was not listed, and I’m the only bridesmaid without a plus one. The bride at one point when we were together even referred to me as “the single one.”
I know that I am not married, but I have been with my boyfriend for four years and we are very serious about the longevity of our relationship. I feel uncomfortable that I am the only one who was not invited to bring a partner, just because we haven’t gotten married yet. Is there any way to ask if he can come, or should I just let it be?
Etiquette says your boyfriend should have gotten an invite since the two of you are long-term and in a serious relationship. Not only that, but particularly because you’re a bridesmaid.
